If the French was until today the must of minimalism, it is now dethroned by its variation: the American manicure! Even if it is less famous than the French, what is the difference between these two techniques? As we told you above, it’s subtle!
To begin with, this method aims to adapt the base of the varnish to each skin tone. Made with more subtle tones than the French, or even with a transparent base, the American manicure tries to magnify the original color of the nail. This change also flatters each individual’s skin tone in a more subtle way than the striking pink of traditional French manicures.
But that’s not his only quality. In addition to its base, the edge of the nails is also painted in a color less intense than the white chosen for the French. Fans of the American manicure will thus more readily opt for cream, beige or even light brown to pimp their nails.
For its very natural appearance and close to the initial color of the nail. Overall, the followers of this technique are often people who want to work on their natural nails and avoid too heavy poses.
